Bio Design: Nature + Science + CreativityBio Design: Nature + Science + Creativity

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
By William Myers. Foreword by Paola Antonelli.

The first book to address thrilling new developments in biological design, now fully revised and expanded

Bio Design examines thrilling new ways in which biology is being applied outside the lab, showcasing some seventy projects that cover a range of fields—from architecture and industrial design to fashion and medicine. This revised and expanded edition celebrates the most innovative and often radical approaches to biological design in recent years, and includes 12 new projects, among them Hy-Fi by David Benjamin, a biodegradable tower; Guard from Above by Sjoerd Hoogendoorn, a company that trains birds of prey to intercept hostile drones; Zoa by Modern Meadow, the first biofabricated leather material brand; and Circumventive Organs by Agi Haines, which uses animal cells to print new types of organs. It also features a new how-to section with tips for collaboration between designers and scientists, FAQs and further resources, as well as a fully revised introduction.

Combining cutting-edge science with the utility of popular design, these projects represent the first steps toward a sustainable revolution.

Items: Is Fashion Modern?Items: Is Fashion Modern?

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited with text by Paola Antonelli, Michelle Millar Fisher. Text by Luke Baker, Anna Burckhardt, Stephanie Kramer, Mei Mei Rado, Jennifer Tobias.

Items: Is Fashion Modern? presents 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a profound impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Arranged A-Z encyclopedia-style, it includes designs as iconic as Levi’s 501 jeans, the pearl necklace and Yves Saint Laurent’s Le Smoking, and as ancient and rich as the sari, the Breton shirt, the kippah and the keffiyeh.

The catalog accompanies the first fashion exhibition to be mounted at MoMA since 1944. An essay by curator Paola Antonelli opens the volume, highlighting the Museum’s unique perspective on fashion and exploring the latter's role in the changing international landscape of design. The 111 texts that follow trace the history of each item in relation to cultural forces past and present, touching on labor, marketing, technology, religion, politics, aesthetics and popular culture, among many others. These concise essays are richly illustrated with a lively mix of archival images, fashion photography, film stills and documentary shots.

Punctuating the book are newly commissioned portfolios by five international contemporary photographers—Omar Victor Diop, Bobby Doherty, Catherine Losing, Monika Mogi and Kristin-Lee Moolman. Each photographer was assigned to represent the objects in one alphabetically ordered section of the book, and their diverse responses bring a vibrant creative energy to the project.

Design objects are complex indicators of larger social, cultural, political and economic contexts, and fashion is no exception. Kaleidoscopic yet exacting, Items takes readers through the history and significance of clothing that has changed the world, from the bucket hat’s multifaceted sartorial journey to the ubiquity and perennial popularity of the white t-shirt and the ever-changing silhouette of the little black dress. It locates new centers of gravity for the field of fashion and asserts its role as an incisive and confident contributor to the broad pantheon of design and the visual arts.

Design and ViolenceDesign and Violence

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Paola Antonelli, Jamer Hunt, Michelle Fisher. Text by Anne-Marie Slaughter, William Gibson, Ingrid Newkirk, et al.

Design has a history of violence. It can be an act of creative destruction and a double-edged sword, and yet professional discourse around design has been dominated by voices that only trumpet its commercial and aesthetic successes. Violence, defined here as the power to alter circumstances against the will of others and to their detriment, is ubiquitous in history and in contemporary society. In recent years, moreover, technology has introduced new threats and added dramatically to the many manifestations of violence. Design and Violence is an exploration of the relationship between the two that sheds light on the complex impact of design on the built environment and on everyday life, as well as on the forms of violence in contemporary society. Published to accompany an online experiment launched by The Museum of Modern Art in October 2013, this book brings together controversial, provocative and compelling design projects with leading voices from a variety of fields. Each invited author responds to one object chosen by the curators—ranging from an AK-47 to a Euthanasia Rollercoaster, from plastic handcuffs to the Stuxnet digital virus—and invites dialogue, comments, reflection and active, occasionally fierce, debate. Examples of questions posed include: Can we design a violent act to be more humane? How far can the state go to protect its borders from immigration before it becomes an act of violence? Is violence "male"? These experimental and wide-ranging conversations host voices from the fields of art and design, science, law, criminal justice, ethics, finance, journalism and social justice, making Design and Violence an invaluable resource for lively discussions and classroom curricula.

Paola Antonelli is the Director of Research & Development and Senior Curator in the Department of Architecture & Design at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Jamer Hunt is a design critic and the founding director of the MFA program in Transdisciplinary Design at Parsons The New School for Design, New York.

Kate Carmody is an independent design curator who has worked for institutions including the Natural History Museum, the Cooper Hewitt, and MoMA.

Michelle Fisher is a Curatorial Assistant in the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA.

Nature + Science + Creativity

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited with text by William Myers. Foreword by Paola Antonelli.

First published in 2012 to wide acclaim for its timely focus on the nascent movement of designing with living organisms, Bio Design is now available in paperback as an inspiring resource for designers, architects, engineers and students. Featuring 73 projects at the intersection of biology and design, it surveys artworks, prototypes and architectural concepts that harness living materials and processes, presenting bio-integrated approaches to achieving sustainability, new innovations enabled by biotechnology, and provocative experiments that deliberately illustrate the dangers and opportunities of manipulating life for human ends. Ranging from fabrics and “concrete” made from bacteria to arbor-architecture, these projects are now more pertinent than ever. By examining how this new phenomenon fits into the history of architecture, art, and industrial design, William Myers contextualizes the shift toward bio design through comparisons to previous historic transitions in art and design practices, clarifying its implications for the future.

William Myers is a curator, writer, and teacher based in Amsterdam. He is the author of Bio Design: Nature + Science + Creativity.

Paola Antonelli is Senior Curator of Department of Architecture and Design, as well as the Director of R&D at The Museum of Modern Art.

Catalogue Raisonné

Published by Vitra Design Museum.
Edited by Mateo Kries. Text by Paola Antonelli, Jan Boelen, Mario Carpo, Mateo Kries, Janna Lipsky, Jonathan Olivares, Louise Schouwenberg, Richard Sennett, Peter Sloterdijk.

Konstantin Grcic (born 1965) is one of the leading designers of our time. Many of his creations, such as Chair_One (2004) or the Mayday lamp (1999), are already recognized as design classics. Konstantin Grcic: Panorama is being published in conjunction with the largest solo exhibition on Grcic to date. It constitutes the first catalogue raisonné of the designer’s work and documents more than 350 pieces of furniture, products and exhibitions with informative details, images and comprehensive descriptions. This overview is accompanied by numerous illustrated essays from renowned authors, including Peter Sloterdijk, Richard Sennett, Paola Antonelli, Jonathan Olivares, Mario Carpo, Louise Schouwenberg, Jan Boelen, Janna Lipsky and Mateo Kries. While some essays investigate Grcic’s oeuvre and its context, others address broader issues that shape Grcic’s work, such as new production technologies, the evolution of the home or the development of public space. The book is further augmented by a series of images depicting visionary spatial designs by Grcic produced especially for the exhibition, demonstrating his conceptions of life in the future. All these facets combine to make the book a unique panorama of a designer whose contemporary influence is widely felt, as well as a fascinating read for all those with an interest in the future of design.

DarkitectureDarkitecture

Learning Architecture for the Twenty-First Century

Published by Two Little Boys.
Edited by Iwona Blazwick. Text by Iain Aitch, Paola Antonelli, Iwona Blazwick, Nigel Coates, Emma Dexter, Tom Greenall Rosy Head, Jonathan Hill, Claire Jamieson, Anna Minton, Rowan Moore, Jake Moulson, Richard Noble, Lucy Pengilley Gibb , Fiona Raby, Alex Smith, Noam Toran, Anthony Vidler, Gilda Williams.

Darkitecture is an anthology of texts and projects exploring how we learn about architecture and build buildings for real communities in the twenty-first century. It draws on the ideas and methods of the late architect Gerrard O’Carroll, a vibrant and unorthodox thinker, reprinting his own writings and statements alongside texts and projects by his contemporaries and alumni. Together these writings represent a selection of “what if?” scenarios with which to proceed on the journey toward becoming an architect; toward the conception of a design vocabulary that enhances everyday life; and the creation of buildings and urbanisms that embrace the irrational and celebrate the social. Darkitecture is a revolutionary handbook that will challenge students, designers, architects and citizens to review the way they look at and think about architecture.

Nature + Science + Creativity

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited and text by William Myers. Foreword by Paola Antonelli.

For centuries, designers and artists have looked to nature for inspiration and materials, but only recently have they developed the ability to alter and incorporate living organisms or tissues into their work. This startling development, at the intersection of biology and design has created new aesthetic possibilities and helps address a growing urgency to build and manufacture ecologically. Bio Design surveys recent design and art projects that harness living materials and processes, presenting bio-integrated approaches to achieving sustainability, innovations enabled by biotechnology, and provocative experiments that deliberately illustrate the dangers and opportunities in manipulating life for human ends. As the first publication to focus on this new phenomenon and closely examine how it fits into the history of architecture, art and industrial design, this volume surveys this shift and contextualizes it through comparisons to previous historic transitions in art and design practices, clarifying its implications for the future. A reference for students and teachers of art, architecture, industrial design and engineering, Bio Design will also introduce the subject to a broad audience.

Talk to MeTalk to Me

Design and the Communication between People and Objects

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Paola Antonelli. Text by Paola Antonelli, Jamer Hunt, Alexandra Midal, Kevin Slavin, Khoi Vinh.

Since the introduction of the personal computer in the early 1980s, many objects have been designed to have capabilities well beyond their immediate use or appearance. Whether openly and actively or in subtle, subliminal ways, these objects talk to us, and we have come to expect interaction with them. Contemporary designers, besides giving objects form and function, write their initial scripts--the foundation for useful and satisfying conversations. Talk to Me focuses on projects that involve such direct interaction--including interfaces, websites, video games, devices and tools, and information systems--as well as installations that establish practical, emotional, or even sensual connections to cities, companies, governmental institutions, or other individuals. The featured objects range in date from the late 1980s to today, with particular attention given to the last five years and projects currently in development. Organized thematically, Talk to Me introduces design practices that are increasingly crucial to our world and demonstrates how rich and deep the influence of design will be on our future.

British DesignBritish Design

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Hugh Aldersey-Williams. Introduction by Paola Antonelli.

As the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, Britain was inevitably the epicenter of the development of modern industrial design. This book—the fourth volume in the MoMA Design Series, featuring works in the Museum's extraordinary design collection—explores this legacy, tracing the growth of British design from the early stages of the Industrial Revolution in the eighteenth century to the Millennium Dome and beyond. In its more than 200-year scope, British Design explores a variety of design products and movements, such as Wedgwood pottery, the Arts and Crafts Movement, the Spitfire and Hurricane fighter planes of World War II, the Mini car and Dyson vacuum cleaner, the “Cool Britannia” cultural explosion in the late 1990s and British designers' take on the digital devices that define entertainment and communication in the early twenty-first century. An introduction by Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art, provides an overview of design culture in Britain; an essay and timeline by Hugh Aldersey-Williams, former design critic for The New Statesman and author of The Most Beautiful Molecule and New American, illuminate the masterpieces of modern British design superbly reproduced in the volume's plate section.

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Text by Paola Antonelli, Anthony Dunne, Alice Rawsthorn, Hal Foster, Gaetano Pesce, Wava Carpenter, Alexandra Midal, et al.

AC/DC: Contemporary Art/Contemporary Design tackles the difficult, traditionally divisive relationship between art and design. Recently, new practices and perspectives in both worlds have surfaced, putting this division under new scrutiny. An overview of the topic which will particularly appeal to students and specialists, this fully illustrated volume is one of the few anthologies to document the dialogue about the crossover between art and design taking place among experts from both fields. These experts include Paola Antonelli, Anthony Dunne, Alexandra Midal, Rick Poynor, Alice Rawsthorn, Paul Ardenne, Diedrich Diederichsen and Hal Foster. The book emerged from a symposium of the same name held in 2007 in Geneva, and is the companion volume to Wouldn't It Be Nice..., published in 2008, which addressed projects that dare to blur that once-impermeable line between art and design.

Ron AradRon Arad

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Paola Antonelli. Text by Paola Antonelli, Judith Benhamou-Huet, Jonathan Safran Foer, Marie-Laure Jousset, Ingeborg de Roode.

Even among the most influential designers of our time, Ron Arad stands out for the versatile nature of his work and his daredevil use of materials and technology. Idiosyncratic, surprising and always visually arresting, Arad's work communicates the joy in creation, the pleasure in invention and pride in technical and constructive qualities. His designs move from limited to almost unlimited series, from handmade to industrial, from carbon-fiber armchairs to polyurethane bottle racks. In work now plastic and tactile, now ethereal and conceptual, he has deftly avoided a recognizable style for more than 20 years. His style is rather a matter of character, reflective of his disregard for established disciplines.
Through his own output and his decade-long tenure as the head of the Design Products graduate program at the Royal College of Art in London, Arad has greatly influenced the current debate on design's relationship with art, technology and innovation and nurtured some of the most promising young designers in today's international scene. Published to accompany the first major retrospective of Arad's work in the U.S., this volume features an interview with the artist and essays on his use of innovative materials and technology, his role as an educator and communicator on the importance of design and his place in the world of design and the larger art market. A lavishly illustrated plate section provides visual and written documentation of approximately 80 works.

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Penny Sparke, Paola Antonelli.

The Museum of Modern Art and 5 Continents Editions recently launched this series of books dedicated to industrial and graphic design. Each volume offers an overview of a single country's design achievements and illustrates its particular design history and aesthetic by showcasing renowned architects and designers through exemplary works drawn from The Museum of Modern Art's unmatched collection. This season, they take on Japan.
Japanese designers' special ability to combine aesthetic tradition with contemporary visual culture and material innovation has created a distinctive and exceptionally successful design industry in Japan, which has produced such divergent icons of Modern design as Sori Yanagi's Butterfly Stool, the Sony Walkman, the Honey-Pop Armchair by Tokujin Yoshioka and the Toyota Prius. This volume traces the development of Japanese design from the country's craft revival in the early twentieth century to the extraordinary objects of high technology that have been a specialty of Japanese designers since the middle of the century. Antonelli's lively introduction provides an overview of Japan's design culture, while an essay and timeline by Penny Sparke illuminate the masterpieces of Modern Japanese design that are superbly reproduced in this volume's plate section.

Engaging Italian industry and culture in a single-minded and spontaneous project of national image building, Italy's designers have produced a complete variety of forms--fashion, graphic arts and product and set design--with a unique international resonance. This volume explores Italian design of the last half-century, featuring the classic lines of the Vespa, Bruno Munari's deconstruction of the common fork, the nostalgic appeal of Italo Marchioni's ice cream cone and the sleek Minimalism of Alberto Meda's 1987 "Light Light Chair," among many other masterpieces. Paola Antonelli's lively introduction provides an overview of Italy's design culture; an essay by Giampiero Bosoni illuminates the design objects that are superbly reproduced in the volume's plate section.
Giampiero Bosoni is an architect, curator and Associate Professor of Interior Architecture in the Faculty of Design at the Polytechnic University of Milan. He is the author of several surveys and monographs, including Il Modo Italiano: Italian Design and Avant-garde in the 20th Century and a monograph on Max Huber.

American DesignAmerican Design

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Russell Flinchum, Paola Antonelli.

American design, like much of American culture, perennially oscillates between populism and elitism, between the revolutionary beauty and availability of Tupperware and the elusive exclusivity of Tiffany's. This book traces the development of American design from the "armory practice" of early American machinists through mid-century "design for modern living" to the branded, consumer-oriented design of the present day, including work by Charles and Ray Eames, Raymond Loewy and Frank Gehry, among many others. Paola Antonelli's lively introduction provides an overview of United States design culture, while an essay by Russell Flinchum illuminates the masterpieces of Modern American design that are superbly reproduced in this volume's plate section.
Paola Antonelli is Senior Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Russell Flinchum teaches in the Design Criticism program at the School of Visual Arts and lectures for the Department of Education at The Museum of Modern Art. He has been the Archivist of the Century Association Archives Foundation since 1999.

Monica Castiglioni & Natsuko Toyofuku: AnthiasMonica Castiglioni & Natsuko Toyofuku: Anthias

Jewels Since 1990

Published by Charta.
Text by Paola Antonelli, Monica Castiglioni.

In Milan's central railway station district, Monica Castiglioni and Natsuko Toyofuku collaborate on much-coveted, limited edition collections in their jewelry workshop, Anthias. Indifferent to the dictates of fashion, they choose to let their clients come to them-and as a result, over the course of their two decades of collaboration, they have become famed worldwide for playful and affordable pieces that always seem to defy prevailing tastes, but which manage to improve with age. The constraints of their production apparatus and habits allow for a concentrated experimentation with form, color and handmade techniques-no design is entirely resolved at the drawing board stage. This volume is the first to offer a look at their entire oeuvre (which consists almost entirely of unique pieces). Anthias can be found at the MoMA Design Store, Moss and Karkula in New York, the Victorian & Albert Museum Shop in London, DePadova in Milan and Dice & Dice in Japan.

Design and the Elastic MindDesign and the Elastic Mind

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Paola Antonelli. Text by Paola Antonelli, Hugh Aldersey-Williams, Peter Hall, Ted Sargent.

Over the past few decades, we have experienced dramatic changes in some of the most established dimensions of human life: time, space, matter and individuality. Today our minds must be able to synthesize such transformations, whether they are working across several time zones, traveling between satellite maps and nanoscale images, gleefully drowning in information or acting fast in order to preserve a bit of down-time. Organized by Paola Antonelli, Museum of Modern Art Curator of Architecture and Design, Design and the Elastic Mind focuses on the ability of designers to grasp momentous advances in technology, science and social mores, and to convert them into useful objects and systems. Included projects range from nanodevices to vehicles, appliances to interfaces and building facades, pragmatic solutions for everyday use to provocative ideas meant to influence our future choices. Designed by award-winning book designer Irma Boom, this volume features essays exploring the promising relationship between design and science by Antonelli, design critic and historian Hugh Aldersey-Williams, visualization design expert Peter Hall and nanophysicist Ted Sargent.

Richard Hutten: Works in UseRichard Hutten: Works in Use

Published by Stichting Kunstboek.
Essays by Paola Antonelli, Aaron Betsky and Brigitte Fitoussi. Interviews with Humberto Campana, Konstantin Grcic, Karl Lagerfeld, Karim Rashid, et al.

The Dutch designer Richard Hutten is barely 38 and has already made an indelible mark in the international design world. In 2008, if everything goes according to plan, a design academy carrying his name will open in Seoul. Orders for his contemporary version of the Berlage chair are difficult to keep up with, and his Domoor mug, Bronto chair and Zzzidt chair (also known as the "skippy") remain very successful. At the Central Museum in Utrecht, the Netherlands, he has designed the restaurant, the garden furniture and the bookshop. Hutten's designs, or "works in use," as he likes to call them, are sought after by celebrities and colleagues alike, and several of his colleagues testify to their strong feelings about his oeuvre in this exceptional monograph: Jeffrey Bernett, Aaron Betsky, Humberto Campana, Konstantin Grcic, Masamichi Katayama, Karl Lagerfeld, Karim Rashid, Marcel Wanders and many others. Paola Antonelli introduces.

Total LivingTotal Living

Art, Fashion, Design, Architecture, Communication

Published by Charta.
Edited by Maria Luisa Frisa, Mario Lupano and Stefano Tonchi. Essays by Paola Antonelli, Francesco Bonami, Michele Ciavarella, Emanuela De Cecco, Ricardo Dirindin, Maria Luisa Frisa, Mario Lupano, Roberto Monelli, Herbert Muschamp, Chee Pearlman, Michelle Serenini, Dietmar Steiner, Dejan Sudjic and Stefano Tonchi.

Styles and lifestyles are fast becoming uniform under labels and definitions of fashion, and as an industry and a cultural form. Total Living is the point of no return in a project which, step-by-step, develops strategies whose goal it is to offer an even more sophisticated and targeted lifestyle. It is a place where there are definitions for clothes, behavior modes, and even the atmoshpheres and spaces in which one moves. Assuming the contours of a landscape of the future, this scenario raises topical themes and problems connected with the overwhelming power of consumerism. Accompanying scholarly essays consider the thematic universes of fashion designers and brands; models of total living in 20th century history; references to total living in mass culture; living and eating; arty fashion and fashionable art; the world of fashion design; the languages of shopping; urban fashion districts; and advertising as a narrative. A fabulously rich and interconnected iconographic passage visually narrates the various forms and ramifications of total living today and in the recent past through a succession of utopias, life-projects, urban visions, architecture, special homes, stores, art galleries, museums, and editorial pages and ads from fashion and lifestyle magazines. Total Living shows life for the show that it is--or has become. Published in collaboration with Pitti Immagine.

Achille CastiglioniAchille Castiglioni

Published by Edizioni Corraini.
Essay by Paola Antonelli.

This new monograph documents the work of international master of design Achille Castiglioni. During his half-century career, Castiglioni has designed over 150 objects, including lamps, stools, bookshelves, electrical switches, cameras, telephones, vacuum cleaners and car seats. Many of his designs, like the Arco and Brera lamps, the Firenze wall clock, the RR 126 stereo system, and the Primate seat, achieve the highest standards of visual art as well as design, and several of his works are featured in the design collections of major museums. Taking as his motto ''Design demands observation,'' Castiglioni has created objects that are inspired by and respond to the demands of everyday life, basing some of his most famous designs on quotidian objects like a street lamps or a car's front reflector. His work is marked throughout by an attention both to the timeless essentials of great design and to the changing behavior and values of modern culture. This catalogue presents the highlights of Castiglioni's 50-year career in design in sumptuous reproductions, documenting an oeuvre that constitutes one of the highest expressions of contemporary creativity.
